The FAST-LAB -- Certified And Secure Time and frequency transfer

This common laboratory project inaugured in july 2019  aims at promoting and shaping the interest of the FEMTO-ST institute and the company Gorgy Timing for developing secure and certified time dissemination systems.

The applications of this work include mobile telephony, GPS, stock exchange transfers and sensor networks.

FEMTO-ST, through its Time and Frequency department, exhibits a long and internationally recognized expertise in characterizing and generating ultra-stable frequency signals. Digital signal processing techniques applied to radiofrequency (RF) signals, derived from software defined radio techniques, for characterizing time and spectral characteristics of oscillators provide the opportunity to bridge the fields of interests of the two partners. FEMTO-ST also provides expertise in the field of cybersecurity through the security test team of the Computer Science department (DISC), hence providing a synergy on the research topics ranging from time-frequency to software security.

After numerous collaborations, through research projects and theses, and the creation of an R&D branch in Besançon in 2008, the company SENSeOR  has committed in 2015 with FEMTO-ST on a structured bilateral partnership by creating a joint research laboratory, named "Physical Acoustics, Sensors and Embedded Systems .

The aim of this collaboration, which lasted until 2019, was the joint development of incremental and breakthrough innovations in fields related to the development of new high-performance, wirelessly searchable, low-cost passive sensors, as well as their valorization
